Students at Shattuck Middle School reportedly received an assignment recently that has some parents up in arms. According to EAG News, students at the Neenah, Wis., school were given a worksheet depicting two laborers, one of whom is laying bricks along a pathway while the other is removing them. Scroll down for video.
The former man was shown with the Democrat Party’s jackass symbol on his shirt, while the latter’s clothes bore an elephant associated with the GOP.
The eighth grade class was then instructed to analyze the photos and answer a series of questions about their behavior, culminating with the query: “What might this mean to us about immigration and citizenship?”
As it turns out, the two men reportedly signify the Democrat’s effort to build a so-called pathway to citizenship for millions of illegal immigrants contrasted by the position of many Republicans that America’s immigration laws should be enforced.
One parent, Scott Radies, was taken aback by the assignment, explaining he initially checked the back of the sheet “to see if the opposite view” was expressed. It wasn’t.
He then perused his son’s answers – for which he was given a perfect grade.
“When I saw his answers to the questions,” Radies explained, “and realized that the teacher gave him five out of five so apparently those answers that he gave were the ones she was looking for because he got them all right.”
Some of the answers he wrote to earn the grade included his analysis that “the Democrat is building [and] the Republican is destroying” and “that the Democrats want immigrants to come in and Republicans don’t.”
